ERC project EQualIS

Enhancing the Quality of Interacting Systems


Description of the project

The ubiquitous use of computerized systems, and their increasing complexity, demand formal evidences of their correctness. While current formal-verification techniques have already been applied to a number of case studies, they are not sufficient yet to fully analyse several aspects of complex systems such as communication networks, embedded systems or industrial controllers. There are three important characteristics of these systems which need to be tackled: The goal of this project is to develop a systematic approach to the formal analysis of interacting systems. We will use models from game theory for properly taking into account the interaction in those systems, and will propose quantitative measures of correctness and quality, that will take into account the possible perturbations in the systems. The core of the project will be the development of various algorithms for synthesizing high-quality interactive systems. We will be particularly attached to the modularity of the approach and to the development of efficient algorithms. The EQualIS project aims at enhancing the design and verification of interacting systems, by providing a rich framework, that will increase our confidence in the analysis of such systems.
